Hairdressers Festival 'Crystal Angel' In Kiev

Vanity Hair: Cosmetology Fest Goes Cosmic

Out-of-this-world looks from Kiev's annual hairdressing show.

Forget prom updos and wedding hair – the International Festival of Hairdressing Art in Kiev, also known as "The Crystal Angel," is giving a whole new meaning to intricately tangled hairstyles. Since 2001, the cosmetology show has put a spotlight on stylists and makeup artists, bringing their two crafts together for a spectacle like no other. See photos from this year's space-inspired presentation.
